There are SUVs that claim to be adventurous and some that are surely ready for the journey of the road. However, few are actually ready to take you and your gear places. That is why we’re comparing the 2015 Ford Explorer vs the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both vehicles have similar power, fuel economy and safety rating. However, the Explorer comes with more space, roof racks and costs significantly less. All other features on the two SUV are relatively the same, which has us asking what the Jeep really has that warrants that extra cost? Is removing a roof rack and adding a moonroof worth a few thousand dollars?
We don’t think that it is. Not to mention that you can seat seven in the Explorer vs five in the Grand Cherokee. The Explorer also comes with some great features at the base model level. You’ll likely find more than enough readily standard. AdvanceTrac, Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist pair exceptionally well with the V6 that produces 290 hp and 255 lb-ft. of Torque.
The Right Kind of Performance
You won’t ever find yourself asking why the Explorer has this or that feature, especially when it comes to power. That isn’t to say that the vehicle doesn’t have comfort amenities, because those are necessities in our eyes. This SUV always has enough power. The standard engine on the base model can tow up to 5,000 lbs. Along with that, the vehicle comes with AdvanceTrac to keep you in control of the vehicle in the roughest of conditions by monitoring wheelslip, oversteer and understeer. Intelligent 4WD is also available and can be adjusted to each type of terrain.
